The Relative Strength (RS) Rating for XP Inc Cl A jumped into a new percentile Wednesday, with a rise from 76 to 81.
When looking for the best stocks to buy and watch, one factor to watch closely is relative price strength.
IBD's proprietary RS Rating identifies market leadership by showing how a stock's price action over the last 52 weeks measures up against that of the other stocks in our database.
Over 100 years of market history reveals that the market's biggest winners tend to have an RS Rating of at least 80 in the early stages of their moves.
The IBD Sector Leaders stock broke out earlier, but has fallen back below the prior 51.59 entry from a consolidation. If a stock you're watching clears a buy point then retreats 7% or more below the original entry price, it's considered a failed base. It's best to wait for the stock to form a new base and breakout. Also understand that the most recent consolidation is a later-stage base, which makes it riskier to establish a new position or add shares to an existing one.
Earnings growth slowed in the most recent quarter from 93% to 89%. But revenue gains moved higher, from 40% to 73%.
XP Inc Cl A holds the No. 1 rank among its peers in the Finance-Investment Banking/Brokers industry group.
